Chef Tajima aims to marry tradition with modernity through his careful selection of ingredients and tableware, another defining and essential feature of traditional Japanese cuisine. His multicourse meal is not only pleasing to the palate but also to the eye, as you can watch Chef Tajima skillfully prepare each dish to perfection.
What is “Kappo” ?“Kappo” is a traditional form of Japanese cuisine. The word “kappo” literally means “to cut and cook.” In kappo style cooking, the chef prepares small dishes right in front of the customer. At Kappo TAJIMA we only offer prix fixe menus. We do not have a la carte menu but additional dishes can be ordered at request.
